2011 Hilltop EC and "George"
I don’t know if
you will remember me, but I e-mailed you for some advice
last winter, about George our cob, who had been diagnosed
with uveitis. He seemed to always have a “runny”
eye, and it was always half closed and looked very painful.
eye drops and cream from the Vet, we purchased a Guardian
Mask from our UK distributor Jeanette, and he has worn it
all summer. He has lived out in the field with his pals
24/7, and he doesn’t seem to mind wearing his mask at all.
He has also adapted to the Lightweight Riding mask over his
bridle extremely well, and I’m convinced that he has worked
out, that the mask is helpful to him.
He has been
very well now for almost a year, with no signs of any more
outbreaks of uveitis, and the Vet who treated him, rang me
to ask for details of the Guardian Mask Co. so that she can
pass them on to her other clients, whose horses suffer in
I wondered if
you would like to see the pictures of him before we bought
him the mask and afterwards. He looks so
miserable in the first one, before we knew what was wrong,
and you can see how the eye is wide open in the second
picture. Also, you can see how he can now enjoy
himself in the third picture.
Thank you once
again for your help.

Hi there Ann,
Absolutely I remember you, you
were so kind and thorough in your inquiries! The
"before and after" photos are incredible. We would not
have known that was the same horse! We're delighted George
has responded well with the mask and we also really
appreciate the added vet support too! Thank you
so much for sharing with us, and thank you everyone at
Hilltop as well!
